Whirlpool WEP84800 Range - Clicking Sound from Control Panel

Hi - We have just purchased a used Whirlpool WEP84800 Electric Range. It was supposed to be in great condition but when we turn on the oven we hear a "clicking" sound coming from the control panel at the top of the stove accompanied by a low buzzing sound as the oven elements heat up and clicks again every time the elements reheat. Any ideas why this is happening?? thanks in advance.

SOURCE: my electric glass top stove won't heat up?

They have a thermal overload resistor in the burner itself and they have a propensity to burn out, or it could be the infinite switch. You will have to check resistance across the leads that correspond to each pinout. You can find this out by backtracing the wire to each terminal on the block. Replacement of either part is the only option, there are no safe alternatives to repair them. Hope this helps. BTW, you can go here for parts.

SOURCE: Whirlpool electric range model # RF261PXSQ oven not heating

I'm afraid you may have a blown Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the functions of the oven. The surface elements are controlled by individual infinite switches behind each control knob.. That's why the surface elements all work, but the oven does not. A replacement EOC can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and you will find it under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 12. There are several listed, based upon the color you need (White, Biscuit, and Black). This is a very simple repair that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish if you wish to perform this on your own. All you have to do is UNPLUG the appliance and remove the back panel of the console to access.

Before assuming the EOC is defective, however, inspect the board to see if it has a fuse on it. I do not have a wiring diagram to confirm. Some of these boards do have fuses and that's all that it may take to repair it. However, if the board shows signs of burned components, replace it. NOTE: Check for any loose connectors to the board as well.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have questions and/or require additional assistance.

Wire burning smell whirlpool range. Happens when oven or top are turned on. Smoke come out under control panel.


Had the same problem with my Whirpool range. Took off the rear panel and carefully plugged in and turned on the top oven. One of the terminals on the part labeled as 'Switch, Hi-limit' started to spark, glow and emit smoke. This part had 2 blue wires running to it. One came off of the top element in the top oven and the other fed back into the black plug on the control panel. Part in quests is held on with a single screw and has a part no. of 7403P993-60

Our Whirlpool over the range microwave makes a clicking sound for a few seconds then shuts the microwave off. The microwave is unusable. The sound seems to be coming from the control panel.


If the cooling fan is not working, that would explain the shutdown problem. The function of the fan is to cool the magnetron down when it is warming or cooking the food, if the fan fails to run, the thermal fuse will detect heat rise causing a shutdown with in 5 seconds or more, the clicking suggest fan issues. I would recommend a whirlpool technician to go through the system.

Clicking sound from control panel of my new glass top samsung electric range every 30 secs or less. as the oven is warming up to temp. It continues after it reaches temp. but not as bad....


This clicking sound is a result of the heating element cycling on and off as it tries to maintain a temperature. It heats up rapidly to a maximum, safe temperature and once the maximum is met it shuts off for a couple of seconds so it does not overheat the cooktop and/or your temperature setting. As far as the clicking, just how loud is it? If it's minimal and only fantly noticable then it's normal. If it is quite loud and annoying that may be a whole other issue. Does this information help? Let me know.
Before I forget, there should be a section in your Owner's Manual explaining that the clicking sound is part of it's normal activity.

My DCS range burners with electric start.


Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
